I cancelled my recurring subscription on LJ. Due to bad timing it renewed last month so I'll coast on that for a year. No clawbacks allowed, oh well. I also need to move this thing to paid, which I believe will help with the tags issue.
I'm still struggling a bit with access controls. I think I've subscribed and granted access to folk but I'm not quite sure if I'm actually reading everyone. They claim to have "reading filters" but in fact I think those things are "subscription filters". See http://www.dreamwidth.org/manage/circle/editfilters which has the text "Dreamwidth provides two types of filters: Access Filters, which are used for setting security on items, and Reading Filters, which are used for filtering your Reading Page"; however, the link is to "Manage your subscription filters". None of which makes clear what I'm actually reading, because the thing I had on LJ that was "default view" for my reading page now appears as an access filter.
So if you're reading this and I'm not commenting on your stuff please let me know. And if you're not reading this... um, I hope you see it on LJ and let me know because otherwise I iz lost.
jducoeur posted (only on LJ) a pretty cogent piece on why he's moved. Here, go read it. If you're reading this on LJ and haven't moved that's cool. I will stop reading LJ at some point, but before that I hope to have as much of my conversation network re-created over on DW as possible. If that's an option for you, I hope you'll consider it.
Although I am not myself targeted by Russian discrimination against political bloggers and LGBTQ persons I view it as a gesture of solidarity with those persons to withdraw my support from LJ.
I'll cease cross-posting soon.
